Danny Myrick

Born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, Danny Myrick, a preacher’s kid, first hit #1 with a gospel song at 17. After moving to Nashville, Danny transitioned from gospel to country rock, founding Western Flyer, which scored several top 40 hits. His songwriting versatility has led to over 50 million record sales from cuts by artists like Montgomery Gentry, Joe Cocker, Kenny Chesney, and Maddie & Tae.

Danny’s notable hits include Craig Morgan’s “International Harvester,” Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah,” LoCash’s “I Love This Life,” and Jason Aldean’s 2009 smash, “She’s Country.” In 2020, he released his solo EP “King Of Jones County” and produced #1 albums like Jake Hoot’s “Love Out Of Time” and Leslie Jordan’s “Company’s Comin’” featuring collaborations with Chris Stapleton and Dolly Parton.

His recent work includes writing for Reyna Roberts’ “Bad Girl Bible” and Payton Smith, along with Kenny Chesney’s upcoming “One More Sunset.” Danny Myrick continues to shape the country music scene with his prolific songwriting and production.

Paul Jenkins

Paul Jenkins, hailing from Southeast Texas, settled in Nashville after exploring his profound musical roots. With over a decade in the music industry, Paul has become a celebrated songwriter and producer. His work spans across genres, collaborating with country legends like Dolly Parton and Ricky Skaggs, as well as pop and gospel stars such as Katy Perry and Michael McDonald.

Paul’s songwriting prowess was recognized in 2011 when he was nominated by Music Row Magazine as a breakthrough songwriter for his chart-topping hit “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” performed by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson. His extensive catalog includes hits for Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, and other prominent artists, earning him Grammy and ACM nominations.

Recently, Paul launched Bone Bone Creative, marking the milestone with Megan Moroney’s #1 hit “Tennessee Orange.” Paul continues to shape the musical landscape from his base in Nashville, where he lives and breathes the city’s vibrant creative spirit.

Travis Howard

Travis, originally hailing from Georgia, is a songwriter and producer who discovered solace from the weight of Southern guilt and shame in the vibrant city of Los Angeles. Until the age of 26, he often felt like an outsider, but everything changed when he found himself in East Hollywood. Suddenly, his story resonated with everyone, becoming a shared experience for many. His career took flight as he began crafting country hits alongside Miranda Lambert, and his songwriting prowess led him to collaborate with esteemed artists like Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Waylon Payne, Brooks & Dunn, and Reba McEntire.
